General Tso's Chicken in Detroit Area

Bob Ward | Oct 25, 200010:57 AM

There are two kinds of Chinese restaurants in the Detroit area. One type says "Szechuan and Hunan Cuisine Our Specialty." The other has a flashing neon sign that reads "Chop Suey." The latter has bad food, the first type is much worse. I have never found any restaurant in this area that claims to serve General Tso's Chicken that wasn't made of boiled white chicken meat with no seasonings. No matter how you order your food (mild, medium, hot etc.), all is served exactly the same (no spices at all) since a customer is much more likely to return a dish that is too spicy than one that is bland. When I complain that I ordered a dish made with chicken thighs instead of chicken breast, I'm told that customers don't like dark meat. Does anyone know of a restaurant (hopefully within 10 miles of Southfield) that actually serves General Tso's chicken with the appropriate spices?
